From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6–The mismatch in this series between easy-to-read text and higher-level content may attract middle-school students who read below grade level. Volumes open with a dozen or so random questions and short answers on the chosen topic, followed by four pages of equally random facts, four thumbnail profiles of relevant scientists or inventors, a spread of word jumbles and other tests, and an easy activity. Surrounded by small color photos or diagrams, the text comes in short, digestible bits but contains occasional technical language, such as that in the discussion of Fahrenheit versus the Celsius and Kelvin scales in Water. Furthermore, Electricity assumes familiarity with parallel circuits. The scattershot topical coverage (the all about claim in each title is laughably false), along with rare but obvious factual errors (comets don't blow jets of matter toward the sun, as claimed in Stars Twinkle) will make these titles of limited appeal.
